Erol Altug, an A.P Biology teacher at the Stony Brook School in New York, Led his class in an experiment to determine the affect light has on algae growth. Using our Beaker Bag Algae Growing kits, the students set up two identical algae cultures. One was placed under fluorescent light that was on 24/7 while the other was placed high on a cabinet and only exposed to overhead lights when class was in session as well as whatever natural light was available in the classroom. After 9 months the Students had their answer.
So what do you think, Does light affect growth?
